Paul Lambertโ€™s Villa end a run of six Premier League defeats with a draw at high flying West Ham however their failure to score means it is now no League goals in six of eleven matches this season and twenty three in the forty nine matches since the start of 2013-14.

As a result Villa remain in sixteenth, two points above the drop zone with eleven games played,

Meanwhile, in what had become typical of the short-termism of Lambertโ€™s recruitment policy, centre back Philippe Senderos made his final appearance for Villa aged 29 before moving on to Grasshopper Club Zurich in January 2016 on a free transfer. Senderos had only joined Villa in July 2014 and made just 9 appearances for the club.

Quotation Marks.png


โ€I thought we were excellent, resolute, everything you need to get anything from here.

โ€œWest Ham have been on a rich vein of form. They have been playing really well, so to come here and get something is a big result for us.

โ€œI thought we were first class. It was a massive point for us.

โ€œI thought in the second half we looked comfortable up until the last five minutes or so when they put their big lads on. Guzan has made a world-class save towards the end.โ€

Paul Lambert, Saturday, 8 November 2014.

*BBC Sport*
Saturday, 8 November 2014

*West Ham striker Andy Carroll was denied a goalscoring Premier League return as Aston Villa clung on to halt a run of six successive defeats.*

Carroll, making his first appearance of the season after an ankle injury, had two late headers saved after coming off the bench at Upton Park.

The Hammers created numerous chances, especially during a frantic finale, but could not force a breakthrough.

For Villa it is a first point since victory at Liverpool in September.

The result may be a relief for boss Paul Lambert, who signed a new four-year contract at Villa in mid-September but has not seen his team claim a win since.

Lambert had acknowledged before the match that he was not โ€œbomb-proofโ€ and was aware he needed to halt the miserable sequence of defeats.

A lack of goals continue to be a problem for his side. They have hit the target just once in almost 12 hours of football, Andreas Weimannโ€™s strike in last weekendโ€™s 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham.

In contrast West Ham had plundered 19 in their opening 10 games - their best goalscoring start to a top-flight campaign for 28 years, and the kind of form that earned Sam Allardyce Octoberโ€™s manager of the month award.

The Hammers are now unbeaten in five but could not force a breakthrough, even with Diafra Sakho back in the side after the shoulder injury which kept him out at Stoke.

Sakho, a ยฃ3.5m signing from French side FC Metz, had been aiming to become the first player to score on each of his first seven Premier League starts. He had three headed chances but failed to get any on target and suffered a frustrating afternoon.

It was the same all over the pitch for the Hammers, as they made the majority of the running but could not force the ball past Villaโ€™s in-form keeper Brad Guzan.

Starting his 85th Premier League game in a row, the American made good first-half saves from ex-Villa men Stewart Downing and James Collins, and twice denied Carroll late on by stopping close-range headers.

It meant there was no fairytale return for the Hammers ยฃ15m record signing, who was making his comeback after tearing his ankle ligaments in the summer.

Villa, who had defender Nathan Baker stretchered off, had their moments. The lively Gabriel Agbonlahor - in for the suspended Christian Benteke - created and missed an early chance and Weimann brought a fine save out of Adrian with a drive from 12 yards.

But in the end, neither side could find a way through and it is Villa who will be more content with a point.

*West Ham manager Sam Allardyce:* โ€œIt was a terrific effort that we gave. When we lulled a little bit in the second half the changes we made gave us that exciting all-important finish and our fans the chance to see another win here.

โ€œThe sad thing was that when our finishing was good, the goalkeeper was even better. We have got to respect the point and itโ€™s our second clean sheet, which is good.

โ€œAston Villa are a frustrating team to break down, but we broke them down several times apart from the keeper.

โ€œIt was nearly a fantastic end to the game and we are very disappointed we didnโ€™t get the three points.โ€
